Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is a revelation.
Not only has the documentary provided an absolutely mind-blowing bunch of previously unknown material both produced by and about the legendary and complex being that was Kurt Cobain, but it has entirely transformed what we thought we knew about him.
With unrestrained and sometimes brutally raw access to the most intimate moments in Cobain’s life, Montage of Heck is bursting at the brim with factual titbits that’ll leave you with some serious brain hurt.
So to help you out, Triple M’s Head of Rock Mitch Braund grabbed us five essential life lessons learned from Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck.
Bask in it:
5 Things I Leant From Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck
1. Rock'n'Roll may not save lives, but it can prolong them.
You get the feeling Kurt would have checked out of this world much sooner had he not had his guitar and his art.
2. Kurt obsessively documented his life.
It's amazing how a movie like this can be pieced together. With all of the writing and recording he did documenting his life, it's like Kurt guides you through his life personally.
3. It's unsettlingly raw.
This was as unnerving as any horror movie that lingers with you. A front row rollercoaster seat into the inescapable despair of Kurt's mental health battles and drug addiction.
4. There's no such thing as a chemical romance.
Think the 27 club is cool? You're a fool. Stay in school, and watch this movie.
5. Nothing's off limits!
This is not a Director gushing over his must. It's just...real.
